Hickory Street Lounge

Denton is a city full of bars where college students at the nearby University of North Texas campus can get hammered on a shoestring budget, but not at Hickory Street Lounge, Denton's answer to the retro Prohibition-era cocktail trend. You need to have a little more spending money to do that here, but while the philosophy of most neighboring bars is quantity over quality, Hickory Street Lounge invites its customers to stop and taste the drinks, mixed by quite possibly the only true mixologist in all of Denton. But the biggest sign of bar's desire to let the taste of its drinks shine through is the strict no-smoking policy, a breath of fresh air when bar-hopping in this college town.
